Not simple photography…don’t get me wrong there. But my first wedding of October was on the 5th for Stacey & George and there are two words that describe their wedding: Simple & Photography. As part of my promise to blog something about every wedding I have this month, it didn’t take long to review this wedding and figure out my favorite aspect…the photography. First, Stacey and George had a very simple wedding set up on Hawksnest Beach, St. John. It was them, his parents, her parents and their love…that sounded cheesy, right? Sorry. =) We had some conch shells and palm leaves to add some color to the beautiful white sand and with nothing but the beautiful sound of waves lapping at their feet, they said I Do. It was really just lovely.

But here’s the best part. Yes, it was simple, yes it only took about 20 minutes…but Stacey LOVES good photography and knew that the images of her wedding day will last forever and she wanted them to be GOOD and varied. Not just beach pictures, not just the traditional parents with their newly inherited son or daughter-in-law…but fun stuff. She hired Paradise Pictures for THREE HOURS! This is not very common for such small and simple ceremonies but I LOVE IT and think it’s a great idea!

They got great shots of the ceremony…

But then headed to Annaberg Ruins for some really fun stuff,

stuff that shows their personalities…

and then headed back to the beach to cool off!

If it can work in your budget, I highly suggest having the photographer for multiple hours and working in multiple locations. Your wedding album will be AMAZING.

Now don’t forgot to go read the guests blog posts and leave a comment – contest ends tomorrow at midnight!
